What are some of the challenges you have faced so far?
I guess the biggest challenge for me at the beginning was to get to know people, processes in place, who does what and understanding the culture. But luckily, everyone is helpful and ready to help when necessary.
My typical day at E&V includes..
Listening to people, then listening to a bit more, after that maybe some talking. Oh, of course asking lots of questions while doing tiny talks.
What technology are you most excited about working with next?
If I had the chance, I would have liked to build Skynet. In this way of thinking, I can say that AI for me is the most exciting technology.
What was a great surprising thing you discovered after joining E&V?
Well, Oliver Bohm is drinking at least 1lt of Coke each day and does not offer me any :( Jokes aside, how a 40-old company, can come up with such an ambitious vision and thrilled to make it happen just blows my mind.
I like my coffee…?
Thanks to our coffee variety, I realized how coffee tastes great with Soy milk. Now I can’t drink my coffee without soy milk.
